I ♥ old school hip hop.
Thanks for the feedback on here & on Facebook after my recent post about my blog the other day. I'll probably continue with the irregular blogging for now, as it may eventually lead to something else down the line. I'd really like to design again for another manufacturer so it really leaves me no choice but to keep this somewhat current. While I don't get a lot of comments on here, I do still get a lot of daily hits so I know people are reading this and hopefully somewhat inspired if nothing else.
There was one comment I received that sums up exactly how I, too, feel about blogs...
"I like seeing your layouts. I like reading about the parts of your life that you like to share. I get drawn to blogs by the scrapbooking but I stay when I like the whole picture."
That's so how I operate. I have a pretty long list of blogs on my feed, but the large majority of them I scroll through for inspiration or simply to keep up with what's going on the in the scrapbooking world. There's a much smaller number of blogs that I actually read because they've hooked me with something about their life. Usually it involves a sense of humor... or sarcasm. Because if you can make me laugh... you're in.
And in the past 5 1/2 years of blogging, I've gradually started writing more like I talk in real life... even if it involves slang or not necessarily being grammatically correct.
Although if you know me in real life, I'm probably a lot more inappropriate than I am on here. Gotta keep things somewhat professional!
Here's another page I completed last week while Bryn was gone. I used a design I had recently used a couple weeks ago, but put it on an angle to try something new. And since these pages aren't going in the same scrapbook it doesn't really matter if they look alike anyway.
Although who am I kidding? Most of my pages look alike. In fact, I'll sometimes look back through my pages for inspiration when I'm stuck for something to do.
Not sure I'm totally digging the diagonal look for me. I think it works better for others. My OCD on keeping things lined up is kinda bugging me the more I look at this page.
But hey... gotta try new things sometimes, right?
And speaking of new things... in addition to the Saturdays I'm already rotating with another instructor, I'm also going to be rotating Sundays now for teaching Zumba beginning in August. Yay!
And speaking of Zumba... it's MONDAY so I'm home from teaching this morning! Best way to start the week!
